The Lammys are here…2012 movie blogger awards

The 2012 Lammys are here to celebrate the best movie websites and Top 10 Films is on the campaign trail.

The Lammys are here. The Large Association of Movie Blogs aka The Lamb is hosting its annual movie blogger awards and Top 10 Films hopes, for the first time, to be among the nominations. However, we need votes – YOUR votes! If you are eligible for voting please consider Top 10 Films among your nominations in the category of Best Blog-a-thon/Meme for our Houdini Magic Ticket event last year. The blogathon was surprisingly popular with a handful of close friends joining in to begin with before many more sites got involved in the fun. For more information on the blogathon click here, and to get involved simply create your post and message me through the comments or drop me an email and I’ll add you to the archive.

Please consider Top 10 Films for your nomination in the Best Blog-a-thon/Meme category – Voting is taking place here.

To find out more about The Lammys head on over to The rules are thus: “The voting will be done via a traditional nomination/vote process. The nomination process will last for 2,5 weeks, until May 27th. There are the same number of categories as last year (15). Voting and eligibility is open to current LAMBs only (#1 – 1275). One ballot per site; if your site has multiple contributors, you need to consolidate and submit as one ballot.”

Nominated and winning Lambs get to post the prestigious award-winning badges on their sites!

Voting is carried out here. Here are the categories that sites can be nominated to win:

Best Blog
The self-explanatory big kahuna.

Best Design
Which site looks the best? This could be one that’s built from scratch or expanded from a template.

Best Community Builder/Networking LAMB
Speaks for itself, but this award actually expands into social media outside of blogs like Twitter, Facebook, Google+, Letterboxd etc.

Most Prolific
Who makes you wonder how they sleep at night? Time to let them know their never-ending quest is worthwhile.

Best Blog-a-thon/Meme
So addictive you just couldn’t help but take part. So brilliant, so viral that it took over the internet (or maybe just a bunch of film blogs).

Funniest Writer
Who’s the next Richard Pryor? Or Carrot Top, even?

Brainiac Award
AKA, the “Most intelligent/insightful/academic writer.” Who is the Stephen Hawking of film bloggers?

Best Running Feature
Do you find yourself constantly checking your watch, just waiting for the end of the week to arrive so you can check out the latest Friday’s Favorite Film Freaks on your favorite blog? What regular running features can’t you live without?

Best Ratings System
Some bloggers put a nice spin on the old 5-star system while others come up with something completely different. Which ones do you love to see at the end of a review?

Best Horror/Sci-Fi Blog
Also self-explanatory.

Best Classic Film Blog
Also self-explanatory.

Best Festival/Awards Coverage
Not all do it, but some dedicate months at a time to a festival or the Academy Awards. This is a chance to honor them.

Best New LAMB
A special award for any LAMB that’s been welcomed to the flock since last year’s LAMMYs. Sites eligible are #901-1275 (#1000 Man I Love Films excluded).

Best Podcast
Many LAMBs produce their own podcast, individually or jointly with other LAMBs; which are your favorites? (The LAMBcast is ineligible.)

Best Movie Reviewer
Maybe they just happen to always agree with you. Maybe they write in a way you only wish you could. Maybe you’re in awe of the wide array of films they review. Basically, if you had but a few whose reviews you could read, who would they be?

    This year’s my first year of being a member of The LAMB (heck it’s probably only been a month or so), so definitely going to see if I can check all this out and see about getting some voting done! Fingers crossed for you, Dan ๐Ÿ™‚
